Tzatziki Sauce is a lusciously creamy, flavorful sauce or dip that is HEALTHY and EASY! Tzatziki Sauce is a versatile condiment that will make all of your Mediterranean recipes better! You can serve Greek tzatziki as a dip for veggies and pitas, as a spread for burgers and sandwiches or as a sauce for all your favorite Greek recipes from souvlaki to gyros. It is make-ahead friendly (actually tastes better with time) so it’s the perfect dip/condiment to have on hand. This tzatziki sauce recipe is made with Greek yogurt, cucumbers, fresh dill, lemon juice, garlic, vinegar, salt and pepper for a crazy flavorful sauce. I’ve also included tips on how to make the BEST tzatziki recipe – NO runny tzatziki, NO bland tzatziki and NO stringy tzatziki!
Tzatziki sauce taste best after the ingredients have had time to meld into each other. Plan on making at least an hour ahead of time but can be made 24 hours ahead of time. You can also chop the cucumbers and leave them to drain in the refrigerator ahead of time so then you just have to toss with the rest of the ingredients.
Greek tzatziki should be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. When properly stored, tzatziki will last about 5 days, but is freshest within the first 2. After 2 days, the tzatziki will become a little runny as the cucumbers continue to release moisture – nothing to be too concerned about, but just a fair warning. To remedy this, you can stir in a little extra yogurt to absorb the moisture.
